Rebekah Kaufman (SteiffGal)
Rebekah Kaufman I am a third generation lifelong Steiff collector. My German grandmother kindled my love for the brand over four decades ago, and I am the proud steward of many of her childhood Steiff treasures. My passion became my vocation for several years when I had the pleasure of working for the US division of Margarete Steiff GmbH. I am a regular contributor to the publications "Teddy Bear and Friends", "Doll Reader", and the global "Steiff Club Magazine", where I write about vintage Steiff. I am also the admin on the Steiff Facebook fan page, the National Steiff Examiner on, the social media manager for New England Antique Shows, and the Steiff Worthologist on I truly lead the "Steiff Life."
